Details

The narrower outline of the 420 with PH allows such extreme versatility - a wide range of riders can be comfortable onthis one length. Refined waist width andsidecut make it more responsive that the 420, while longer effective edge gets a little more bite into the hardpack and the Powderhull makes it near impossible tosink the nose.

 

FLEX RATING: 4/5

RIDERSAnyone with an open mind and a desire to fly.

OUTLINERadial Tapered + 3d Powder Hull

A slight taper (12mm) helps keep the nose up without loosing the tail’s ability to hold in hard-pack. Stance is only slightly set back from center of effective edge because the difference in nose and tail shovel keeps you from going over the nose.

The 3D Powder Hull starts with a base profile that combines 2 distinct rocker lines that, when blended together, create a pronounced base concave in the nose and tail. The centerline is fully rockered starting from the insert packs, all the way to the tips of the bluntly shaped nose and tail. Out at the contact edges is a more conventional base profile that we use on many of our other boards. The resultant concave across the nose and tail acts differently at the leading end of the board than it does at the trailing end when riding in deep snow. At the leading end (nose), the concave draws air under the board – just as a concave spoon-nose does on longboards in the surf – causing lift and floatation. As the snow moves across the base it releases off the tail and the exaggerated rocker line along the center, causes the tail to drop downward.

COREWeightless Core

Designed specifically for the 420 and 20/20. The weightless core strikes a critical balance between lightweight and strength. Using a lower density species of Poplar in areas that are not as structural and Paulownia in the areas that are, we’re able to shave precious weight off our beloved 420 and now the 20/20. This helps a board not only float, but “feel” floaty.

BASE MATERIAL: Sintered True

SIN·TER VERB \ˈSIN-TƏR\ transitive verb: to cause to become a coherent mass by heating without melting

This is the term we use, and is the grey zone many companies play in. We call it Sintered Spec because both its hardness and chemical properties, and its on-snow performance , are very close to true sintered - but it is formed using the extrusion process. How? – The raw material is actually pre-consumer recycled (meaning it never left the factory) sintered base material. So while the heating and extrusion process has softened it slightly, it’s still much harder than true Extruded.

Pellets or course powder is pressed until it forms a solid. True Sintered is harder and more expensive than extruded and it can be faster for those that ride aggressively fast. But to do that, it needs to be waxed and prepared for local conditions. Our “Sintered PH Spec” material is specifically chosen for unique flex qualities necessary for the PowderHull’s complex 3D surfacing.

 

DESIGNED IN CANADA: Design and prototype testing takes place in British Columbia Canada. The snowboards are manufactured globally with sustainability in mind.

Non Traditional Sizing Guidelines:

Used on the Optimistic, 420, 420 PH, and the 20/20

These boards defy any notion of traditional length and width. After we designed the 420, we proved that width does provide much of the stability we have always associated with length. Also, that with careful study and development of our sidecuts, we can create a board that is highly responsive and holds an edge better than the traditionalists would have you believe. This realization has influenced several designs that followed

 

420 PowderHull:

Right now we only make one length of the 420 PH, but as in the case of the 20/20, the PowderHull base design allows such extreme versatility, a wide range of riders can be comfortable on this one length. It’s narrower waist width and refined sidecut make it more responsive that the 420, it’s longer effective edge gets a little more bite into the hardpack and the Powderhull makes it near impossible to sink the nose. If your weight range falls between 150 to 200lbs / 68 to 91kg , the 154, 420PH is perfectly suited for you. If you’re over 200lbs / 91kgyou will still have a blast on this board and will be shocked at how well it keeps you on top of the deep stuff.
